ITALIAN TV presenter Paola Ferrari went viral after many thought she’d accidentally flashed the whole of Italy.

But the 60-year-old has denied going commando after being compared to Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct

Rai presenter Ferrari was dressed in a long black gown with her crossed legs on show.

At one point she switched legs with some viewers suggesting the 60-year-old had gone commando.

But the experienced journalist has quashed the rumours, explaining she ‘prefers health and hygiene’.

She said: “It has gone viral, they are using more VAR (for this incident) than on the field at the European Championships.

“It happened but it’s nothing serious.”


Some onlookers also thought they saw an intimate butterfly tattoo revealed.

But Ferrari said: “I can assure you that I do not have a tattooed butterfly, I do not fly so high.”

And on the comparison between her and Stone in the famous interrogation scene in Basic Instinct where she flashed in a similar fashion?


Many viewers drew comparisons between Ferrari and Stone’s famous scene in Basic Instinct

Ferrari added: “It’s a bit of a stretch, as she is one of the sexiest women in the world.

“In short, the viral video seems a bit exaggerated, I presented two evenings WITH pants.

“Sharon Stone was not wearing underwear in that scene. I, on the other hand, prefer to protect health and hygiene.”
